About Matt Fogarty

Matt Fogarty is a legitimate Snapchat emoji artist. He layers so many smartphone emojis with the latest Snapchat stickers to “paint” almost anything and anyone. From Darth Vader to DJ Khaled, Pikachu to Donald Trump, there’s no famous face that he can’t recreate within the confines of his Snapchat stories. He admits to having to shoot his snaps up to 10 times and sometimes take 6-8 hours to get them just right, only to disappear like a Buddhist mandala. He has been featured on @NowThisNews and on Snapchat Live for his incredible feats of snapping. If there were a museum of social media art, the walls would be lined with Matt Fogarty originals.
